Author commentary

Veronica: Fun fact.. Khao Manees are meant to be a Thai cat.. and I read that as a custom that if you pat someone from Thailand on the head, it’s HIGHLY disrespectful since the head is meant to be the most sacred part of the body, the feet being the worst.. so I feel it’s amusing that Lucy, being a Thai cat, totally smacked Abbey for patting her on the head. I didn’t realize the coincidence until later! Seriously, Lucy hits anyone that touches her, but when I found that out, it amused me.

If I got that information wrong, feel free to correct me! And no, I wasn’t making a reference to Girly with the laser gun bit.. although after a while of finishing this comic, I realized this and thought “.. Whoa.. deja vu.. hope people don’t think I ripped off!”

We want to email you some comics!

Join the thousands of BCB fans who look forward to an email of cat drama every Monday morning, and we’ll send you a dozen “Ships Ahoy” comic strips, and one every week after that!

No …
“Is everything fine?”
“Sure, why not?”
“You tell me!”
Makes perfect sense ^_^

John Wilkes Booth was a huge *******. He broke his leg when he jumped from Lincoln’s box onto the stage

actually John Wilkes Booth broke his leg getting out of the theater, thats how they caught him, dragged him to a barn, and killed him before he could face a trial

@ Rue
I did the same thing when helping someone out and I got a ex-girlfriend off of it.
It would be nice if they didn’t think you were flirting :)

You know what?

I really really like abbey. That guy is as nice as he is mature.

So of course Lucy would have to abuse him. god damn it Lucy. -_-

Ahh, but it seems like he might have a thing for Daisy. Then again he might just be his chivalrous nature. :D

I hope Abbey doesn’t end up with Daisy…I can just tell she deserves better. That being said, Abbey is slowly getting better. I like him now, more than Tess. I respect chivalrous people. So that’s all good. :)

We need more Lucy soon. And Paulo. And Sandy.

David is great, as always. :D

So you said that the heads the most sacred place, but her feet are the least. Does that mean that if somebody gave her a footrub shed stop being a bitch? 8-D
